This week has been jumpy. I finished the stripey girl’s dress, and just before sewing on the buttons I decided that I didn’t like the way the straps had turned out. So I frogged back to the armholes.
By next week it’ll be done!
In the meantime, new yarn has arrived and is waiting on top of the bookcase, including a skein made of sugar cane I’ve wanted to test out.
I also got sidetracked by this sweet little hat, which is still waiting for its perfect button.
Reading has been pretty much the same, with me dipping in and out of books and not settling on anything.
I feel like this is February – having me hanging between the last icy winds of winter and the first promises of spring, in between, in the air.
I’ve been feeling restless in general, and am having to remind myself to slow down again, and appreciate slowness and the little things. Like how the purple yarn in the little dress works so well with the Yarn Along button this week.
